Regrettably, this year’s ArcTanGent Festival has become one of the latest victims to the coronavirus pandemic, with the organisers confirming its cancellation for 2020.
This year’s ArcTanGent Festival was expected to feature headline slots from Opeth and Chelsea Wolfe.
They have confirmed, however, that those who have purchased tickets for the event can hold onto them for the 2021 line-up instead, assuring attendees that they will remain valid.
You can read a message from the organisers confirming the news below.
“OK summer lovers, it’s finally time to call time on ArcTanGent Festival 2020.
We tried for as long as possible to stay optimistic, but unfortunately, we have had to take the incredibly tough decision to postpone ArcTanGent until August 19th-21st 2021.
We’re absolutely devastated that we won’t be able to party with you this August at Fernhill Farm.
The decision to postpone wasn’t taken lightly and is sincerely the last thing we wanted to do. We were still hopeful of going ahead until last week. However, it has become increasingly clear that the current situation isn’t going away anytime soon and the health & safety of our guests, staff & the wider community at large has to come first.
The good news is that all tickets will automatically be valid for next year’s event and if you already have your ticket, you do not have to do anything to reserve your place at ArcTanGent 2021. Your existing ticket is now your ticket to 2021.”
A full statement regarding their decision, along with the functioning of the festival, can be read here.
Next year’s ArcTanGent Festival will take place on August 19th-21st 2020 at Fernhill Farm, Bristol.
